If you're thinking of taking a trip to Torquay, you won't want to miss out on a visit to the Australian National Surfing Museum.
The Australian National Surfing Museum -Torquay
Torquay is Australia's surfing capital, and tucked away in the back of the Tourist Information Centre in Surf City, there is the biggest collection of surfing memoribilia I have ever seen.
The museum celebrates the real story of surfing and pays tribute to Australia's surfing heritage and famous beach culture.
The original surf boards were amazing
The historical films they show in the theatre from times gone by were breathtaking, the incredible way that surf boards and surfing itself has changed over the years was fascinating. The old footage was magical to watch.
There is so much on display
The museum houses the Australian Surfing Hall of Fame, and honours the most significant Australians to have contributed to the growth of surfing. There is plenty to see, and lots of activities to keep the children happy. Decorating a blackboard surfboard seemed to be the favourite!
You even get to have a go yourself!
The museum is a must see for everyone; we all had a great time, the children included.
Dive in and immerse yourself in one of Australia’s most popular pastimes.
